law. two words: not good n. a fox news poll, 55% disapprove. in a gallup poll, 51%. in a qunipiac poll, 56%. the numbers vary, i but on this they are consistent, more disapprove than approve this law which should tel the secrary and her boss at the white house all they need to know about this law. not popular, not good and not getting any better. and now they want to target tweets? twits. just check out these tweets to us. one saying: in the private sect, a company with such performance would be bankrupt or dissolved. stil another: geat goals, awful implementation. and then this: it's horrendous and overreaching. government has no business in our health care choices. all of you might regret tweeting all of this, because the government's going to get its hands on all o these. don't say i didn't warn you. christopher bedford, john, what% do you make of this? >> look, they're trying to put mag wheel on a dump truck.
you hve something people don't li, d instead of trying to fix what people don't like, like a normal business would do, you roll out a program, you rollut an idea, and peop don't like it. you change that program or idea to help, toet it to what people want. instead of doing that, they're nitoring people's feedback on this. this is how they've done everhing. they legislate by polls. they go out and check polls and that determines their policy instead of just doing good policyand that's the whole problem here. neil: you'll notice, folks, that john is saying this from the safe confis of bermuda! touche. but, chris, i always find that we waste a lot of time trying to gauge sentiment when we know the sentiment, and we know it's wrong, and we pour a lot of money -- and that is, this administration has - into very expensive and priceyds urging people to sign up because it's good marketing. but you have to have something to market, right? >>and what, what are they going to do with this data? it's not like they're going to get rid of the law.
they're doubled down. they're serious about getting this obamacare through. the only thing i can tell that we know for a fact is when the guys who roed o obamacare get involved in another tech project, it's bicycle to cost probably hundreds of millions of dollars, so it's a little eepy that they're trying. neil: yeah. we're going to get into the legality of all o this, because backo your point, john,an of broadband what's happening here. if you -- wt's happening here. if you read the polls, if you just look at newscasts, even the more liberal ones, you'll ow that a lot ofeople are feeling antsy about losing coverage, paying morfor the coverage and that the n gains in people who didn't he covege getting coverage is far less, far less than they earlier thought. even the vice predent of the united states saying, you know, it's not going to be seven million, but five to six million isn't too shabby. are you kidding me? >> well, that's what they've done this entire time. look, these are neophytes to business and they built this
massive, encompassing legislation, and they've consistently o overpromised and underdelivered. and they keep doing that. and so instead of fixing what they should, you know, it went to a montreal firm to build the web site, then they chang that to a dublin firm. i'm not sure why there's not software eineers here in silicon valley that probably could have done this a lot cheaper -- neil: thatas the problem. they went to montreal to figure this out.
